In L.A. County, on the Probate Case Coversheet (POS-010) filed with a Heggstad Petition, what do I check for "TYPE OF ACTION"?
I've researched this, and I'm about to file a Heggstad Petition in Los Angeles Superior Court. Along with the Petition, I understand I need to file the Probate Case Coversheet (POS-010). On that form, I have a couple questions:
(1) Under "TYPE OF ACTION," do I check the box for "Petition -- Trust/Pursuant Prob Code Sec 17200 (Initial)" or "Other Probate matter (specify):" or something else?
(2) For Step 5, do I check the box for "Decedent" or for "Other:" where I'd fill in "Successor Trustee." Then, if I'm supposed to check the "Decedent" box, what do I fill in for my mother's contact information. It seems strange that a form would ask for contact information for someone who's deceased.
